Motifs of the Revival
A symbol of the East became a popular motif for stylized ornament on A&C tiles, textiles, pottery, and metalwork.
There’s a new sophistication in the way tile is used in kitchens and bathrooms—particularly when the room is period inspired. We’re seeing not just neat backsplashes made of subway tile—in cream, green, even burgundy—but also art tile moving into these rooms. And plain tile is being used in unique ways.
With impeccable Arts & Crafts credentials and a penchant for medieval ideas of handcraft, Ernest Batchelder made tiles that continue to influence California design. These beautiful designs have been revived.
This Expo in print is an exclusive list of contemporary art-tile manufacturers. Their beautiful tiles are suitable for Bungalows and Craftsman houses, for Tudors, Spanish Revival and California homes, and for new buildings of the Arts & Crafts Revival.
